Off the Rack: No Sign of A+ by Aldo at My Target But Here's What I Saw Instead

New fall shoes and clothes - need to make a Target run!!
Earlier this week I visited Target to see if the new A+ by Aldo collection had made its debut yet, but sadly it had not. I've seen some pics on Instagram of the bags cropping up at other stores in other parts of the country but no luck in my area just yet. If you've seen the new Aldo shoes or bags, let me know, I'm dying to see them in real life! If you're as excited as me and can't wait to get your hands on some A+, you can shop a few styles online on sale (buy one get one half off!!)...but I'm waiting to try stuff on. I'm in love with the navy Emery boots and this Mulberry-inspired bag...drool.
